The law: your comments

Rights and wrongs

SORRY TO get all heavy on you, but you can't escape the small-print when you're putting on a show. It's nothing impossible to deal with, but you have certain legal obligations when it comes to copyright, performing rights and contracts and you should go in with your eyes open. 

This chapter of The Edinburgh Fringe Survival Guide is a clear and straight-forward breakdown of the main legal areas you should be aware of. Dot the "i"s and cross the "t"s at the start and you won't find yourself in an awkward corner when you're too far in to do anything about it.

If you have comments about this chapter of The Edinburgh Fringe Survival Guide, please add them below.
